    Apparently my neighbors don't like VW's. . .

    Do you have any idea who could've written it? I would say something with the local cops- just to get it on record. Also, LOL- I went to Michigan as a senior at uni for my FSAE competition and the thing I first noticed above all else was that I only saw one E90 328xi on the road whilst...

    What 6 cars would you have in your dream garage?

    Almost got a E46 330Ci ZHP black on navy top 6MT in pristine (then 3 year old) condition in 2008. But of course, my parents stepped in and ruined everything that is right in the world and it slipped away from my hands.

    The Next Car Swap

    I stupidly test drove a M235i AT yesterday at the place near my parents' house (they didn't have a manual, of course) and then I even tried working out some finance numbers and lied my 25 year old ass off to the incredulous dad-figure salesman that I could afford it. If only I didn't have that...

    Robin Williams dead at 63

    My friends and I have been swapping stories about movies he was in from our childhood tonight. Jumanji and peter pan and mrs. doubt fire were my 90s staple. RIP good sir.

    5 Thoughts I had daily driving a 19 y/o car instead of the GTI

    Surprisingly (or unsurprisingly), the Camry has more but if the GTI could make it up to 172,000, I'd wager that it would have a crap ton of rattles. It's ok right now but this past winter, coupled with the low prof tires/potholes, the GTI was rattling from the dash cubby and right door panel and...

    5 Thoughts I had daily driving a 19 y/o car instead of the GTI

    Disclaimer: This is a long article that I wrote as somewhat of a joke for my coworkers who, for some odd reason, were genuinely interested in my thoughts of jumping from my beloved GTI to an old family car. I’m not a journalist by any stretch of the imagination and by all technicalities, English...

    Switching Jobs

    It's part of the fucked up world that we are in today with the amount of connectivity that we have. For a while, my role in my project required me to do avg. 55 hour weeks and I was BURNT out. And the sad thing, I know certain people easily eclipse 55 hours like its nothing. My work phone is...

    Switching Jobs

    I can't exactly relate to your situation but here was what happened with mine. A guy in my fraternity and fellow engineer major met my old boss in an airport randomly while sharing stories with each other. Through the grapevine, I got the manager's number and it was an engineering consulting...

    General Car, Inferior or Superior Interior, & Eternal Mullet Barge Discussion Thread

    I didn't think they were that bad. A buddy of mine who's in law school now has one and it hasn't left him stranded yet. So I creeped around last night before going out: Convertible is the now-old generation. What's the difference again? :laugh:

    So someone got a new Mini Cooper on my block. I first noticed it the other day and I literally stood there and stared at it for a good 10 mins before I thought "hmmm, this must be the newest redesigned Cooper". It's a little fatter, little wider but even at a 3 second glance, it's SO hard to...

    Convincing My mother to get a passat

    As much as I rip on the Passat for being a land yacht that has lost its ways, I would recommend it over the current Camry. I think I'm very biased now towards German products. However, I think very highly of the new Avalon and have ridden in a few Avalon taxis here in NYC and in Boston and it...

    idk where else to really put this without looking too hard but I finally drove a DSG for an extended period of time (my pop's new car as aforementioned) and I can't say I love it... I was sitting in traffic for a while and my first thought was this is freaking jerky for an "automatic"

    General Car, Inferior or Superior Interior, & Eternal Mullet Barge Discussion Thread

    I hate calling my friends' parents by their first names cuz I rather be overly polite than come off as crass and impolite. And if my friends call my mom by her first name I can see an almost subconscious twitch of disapproval in her face. But at work, everybody introduces themselves by their...

    wait how old are you? 18? I just turned 24 and feel old. Especially when high school kids call me "sir". And I'm edging closer to being able to rent a car without getting slammed with extra fees.

    General Car, Inferior or Superior Interior, & Eternal Mullet Barge Discussion Thread

    It honestly felt a little vague/boat like when I drove it because ya know, it's a bigger car than my GTI which was i used to. But I didn't hoon it around as much as I would've liked. The V8 was very torquey tho. That man had every power in the world to fail me out of engineering school and...

    The now current head of mech engineering and one of my closer professors/ project advisor I had at school drove a E60 545i 6MT/ V8 and it performed flawlessly for him. He even tossed me the keys one afternoon and said, go for it.:D

    I liked the later refreshed iterations of them but I definitely like the newest 7 much more. Far less busy and cleaner/crisp design. However, I have quite a soft spot for the E60/E61 5 series design even though not a lot people like them.
